So i am looking to upgrade my old laptop to a new and way more powerfull desktop. i've been looking a bit, but haven made any decisions, so id liek to hear what you guys think is a good PC, or what and where i should buy for components.
im looking for something like, GPU: 2gb+, CPU: quad 3.5 or more (prefer AMD), HDD: can go as low as 400 GB but 7200 rpm is a must. RAM: 8 GB. Dont need any external stuff such as moniters and mice.
PS. i live in EU so a shop with base/departments somewhere in EU would be nice :)  cant really afford putting another 25% in taxes
games it got to run will be, WoW and BF 3&4
price should stay below 1150$

A 128gb SSD would give you a lot more room for installation files.

With a 64gb drive, by the time you've installed windows and all the extras, you've only got room for one big game.

Here is a great rig that will run all those games. I am building that pc in a few days will run almost any game on high settings but I am not a tech genius so keep asking around.
